The weather is looking dry (fingers crossed!) for this Saturday, Jan. 12 so let’s Ready Set Sketch: Healdsburg! It’s been over two years since we sketched the downtown area and there’s so much to sketch, it’s worth revisiting! We’ll meet at 10am at the gazebo in the plaza then disperse to sketch. We’ll meet back at 1pm to share our sketches. All you need is something to draw on and something to draw with (it’s also nice to have a chair to sit on).Please watch the limited time parking closer to the plaza. I recommend parking on North St. just East of Vine/Grove street. Hope to see you there!!!
Join us SATURDAY November 10, 2018 at 10am-1pm in Healdsburg for the next “Ready, Set, Sketch!” group outing!
I’ll be showing my work at the holiday arts and crafts part of the farmers market this year and will be manning my booth at our scheduled meeting time. Please meet at my booth at 10am. From there we’ll disperse to sketch around town. At 1pm we’ll meet at the fountain next to The Bear Republic to share our sketches.
Anyone is welcome to join us. All you need is something to draw on and something to draw with (though it’s nice to have a chair, hat, and plenty of water).
Please remember to mind the parking limits on the streets!
Join us for a fun filled day of sketching! This month, Saturday August 11, we will meet at Lake Sonoma. This overlook provides a special view of the lake, boats, and the dry Creek Valley. There are hiking trails in the area too so you don’t have to stay in one location.
Exit Hwy 101 at Dry Creek Rd. and head west. Just before you get to the Rockpile Rd bridge, turn left onto Skaggs Springs Rd. Then take the first right up to the Lake Sonoma Overlook. I recommend you bring a lunch. There are restrooms available on site.
Please join us! No experience is necessary. All you need is something to draw on and something to draw with. The event is free.
Come join us SATURDAY July 11, 2015 at 10am-1pm in Healdsburg for the next “Ready, Set, Sketch!” group outing (It also happens to be a World Wide Sketchcrawl day).
We’ll meet at 10am at the gazebo in the downtown plaza then disperse to sketch around the area. We’ll meet back at 1pm to share our sketches.
The town of Healdsburg has an endless supply of sketching opportunities, restaurants, wine tasting rooms, coffee shops, and books stores.
All you need is something to draw on and something to draw with (it’s also nice to have a chair to sit on).
Parking is free but to avoid a time limit, it’s best to park a couple blocks from the plaza.
Last weekend, the Ready, Set Sketch! group toured the Dry Creek Valley by bike. It’s one of the most beautiful rides in Sonoma County. Resting on a hilltop along Chiquita road, I sketched an owl box standing high above the vineyard covered landscape.
Lambert Bridge crossing Dry Creek, located just outside of Healdsburg in the Dry Creek Valley.
Quivira Vineyards, a beautiful winery located on the far end of the Dry Creek Valley has both, arresting views and great wine. This sketch shows a nearby barn, neck deep in vineyards.
Hey all you sketchers!
We have a great sketch day lined up for Saturday, October 18!
Hope to see you all there.
****Just in case the weather looks rainy that day, please check back here for an alternative sketching location.
